Proposed rewrite 2008[edit]

Proposed rewrite (already added it)

Content of proposed article moved to /Proposed rewrite 2008

Please note that I compared information of 2 leading survival books (SAS Surval Handbook and the Survival Handbook by P. Darman to write the text and no contents has simply been copied. Also, I kept the information from the original article (some things where deleted as [[black shoe polish, instructions to make knots, ... as this is generally not commonly used in regular mini survival kits (perhaps in the larger kits but not the mini-ones).

Finally I recommend changing the page to "Mini survival kit" rather than "Mini survival kits (with the -s) —Preceding unsigned comment added by KVDP (talkcontribs) 16:24, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Overdoing the Altoids[edit]

This seems to be a peculiarly American variation, since in the UK at least, tobacco tins (2 oz or 1 oz) have always been the most common suggested container. Nick Cooper (talk) 16:59, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Also the origin of these is from Lofty Wiseman, who used a tobacco tin. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:52, 29 December 2017 (UTC)
